Arsenal ready to steal a march impressive Ligue 1 star at bargain £6m

Much to the delight of the Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern, they are ready to steal a march on Lorient defender Raphael Guerreiro as the battle to land him hots up, according to the Sun.

With a dearth in top class full-backs so prevalent in the current climate of the transfer market, the 22-year old has emerged as one of the top performers on the continent.

Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain are said to be eyeing a move for the Portuguese international as they look to strengthen their options at left-back.

Noted for his marauding runs from full-back, the former Caen man has notched an impressive 10 goals in 95 games despite playing in defensive areas.

Having just 12 months left to run on his current contract, a fee of £6m is mooted in the report, though that may represent somewhat of a coup considering the nature of his impressive form.

Versatility could be a major asset going forward, with the Portuguese able to be deployed further forward.
